I saw this very cute plant stuck in a huge ugly bonsai pot with glued on rocks in home depot today. A plant next to it had mealy, and it was expensive cause of the ridiculous pot, so I passed it up, but I love it, so I'm hoping all you experts can tell me what it is and I can find it somewhere else! That brown trunk type part is hard and dense and feels like a genuine tree trunk, and the leaves seem syngonium and/or philodendron shaped? It appears to be from penang nursery listed as an "exotic", but they didn't give any more info on it... Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Looks like an Alocasia cucullata
